TECHGEEK Podcast 14: OMG! There’s another body!

By on

Yes, apparently Google is into shooting photos of dead people as photos of the dead appeared on Google Street View. Ouch. As well, Motorola gets sued by Microsoft, Facebook lets you download everything you ever uploaded or wrote on Facebook, and MySpace brings out a craptastic new logo.

As well, we bring out a new TECHGEEK Tips episode hosted by Terence and Chris, and the individual episode gets released on Saturday.

Programming note: Terence & James will  not be on next week’s episode. Both are representing groups going to Rome.
